My Afterlife Series - Dissing Anxiety

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

I don’t have much respect for anxiety. My own anxiety is ridiculously annoying. I was never an anxious person until that cancer diagnosis came from out of the blue. Now I worry about my health all the time. I have read that anxiety serves a purpose: to keep you aware of potential danger, but when you…

Little Miss Perfect

I have a sensitive child.  She is beautiful, considerate, intelligent, exceptionally well mannered, and very, very sensitive.

Her sensitivity is one of the things I admire about her the most, and one of the greatest challenges in parenting her.  Besides being the What If Child, she worries mostly about being perfect.  She wants to have the best grades in the…

This Mama is Walking a Catwalk - Read On!

I’m walking the runway March 14 to help introduce VAWK’s new sister line VAWKIN (designed by Project Runway Canada season two winner Sunny Fong)! 

How amazingly AWESOME is that?!

Seriously. I am not a model. I’m a 30-something mom and entrepreneur. I clean snotty noses and poopy diapers. I read books about talking squirrels and grumpy birds. I drive a family car with a car seat. I sit behind a computer all day. I write. I drink coffee. I eat cake…You WON’T normally find me…

The Evolution of Sleep Deprivation

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the dreadful toll motherhood has taken on my sleeping patterns.  Little by little, I'm starting to realize that this sleep deprivation shit is just a never-ending, vicious cycle that nobody ever REALLY tells you about.  Evidently, it never really goes away but just presents itself in different forms along the way, starting from the time…

I CAN'T BREATHE!





These are words are screams and experiences that are all too common amongst most anxiety and panic disorder victims.



Actually, you can breathe if you’re able to shout those dreadful words. Breathing properly is the main issue.  

We must learn how to breathe properly, especially when over-stressed!

When stress ravishes the mind it…

Aspergers Homeschooling Anxiety

Homeschooling Anxiety can be a pretty stressful self-imposed annoyance. But we all get it at sometime or another.  It could be just making a decision whether or not you should homeschool, the abundance of different curriculums,  or trying to find out what works best for your children. The list can seem never ending.

While I love what I am doing, and I know it is the right thing for my boys. I still am riddled with doubt.  I find myself straddling between two separate worlds in a lot…

Heart to Heart

I’m having a bad day.  I had a bad day yesterday, and the day before.  I am feeling off my game.  And I don’t like it.

I spent yesterday afternoon in a cardiologist’s office.  For once, it wasn’t for my father, but for me.  Daddy has had a couple of sets of stents placed in the grafted veins of his heart.  The first round was in January, and again in April.  He is fine now and is feeling much better, but the effects of sitting in the cardiac unit of a hospital have shaken me…

3 Signs That You Are Not As Put-Together As you Think...And People Are Taking Notice!

I have been working hard at trying to keep several truths in the forefront of my mind and soul.  These truths are that my husband loves me.  My husband is so very unabashedly shameful and sorry for the pain he has caused me and has tried every way and every day to show how sorry he is and how much he loves me.

 

The painful truth that I am trying to keep OUT of my heart and soul are the facts that while I forgave him, I am still deeply and terribly hurt by his actions.  I am…

Five Areas Of Healthy Change for Moms

Moms, There is something wonderfully reflective about a new year: it's another chance to get it right.



At the beginning of each calendar year I separate my life into five important areas: physical, emotional, professional, familial and spiritual.  I analyze honestly how I'm doing in each category - well, of course I do; it's my business! Today let me help you to analyze your life.



Physical – Make your personal health your first priority by making an appointment for an annual… Continue

Phantom Noises

The babies are finally asleep.  It's the middle of the day.  Maybe I can squeeze in that shower I've been wanting to take since yesterday morning.



I turn the hot water knob, water sluices toward the wall, the inviting tap tap tap calling to me well before the water is warm enough.  I ready my towel, brush my hair.  I leave the door open, just in case.  Just in case something happens, I'll be able to hear the babies.  Everything should be just fine, right?  They sleep for at least an…

What Parents Can Do About A Child's Test Anxiety

Test is a loaded word and most children know it. While some shrug off the implications of it, others fret and obsess, giving them test taking anxiety. This anxiety, while having many ill effects, most immediately hampers the child’s test taking abilities and reflects upon test scores, which can then inaccurately reflect the child’s knowledge over a subject matter. This uphill battle does not have to be fought alone; parents can help their children with test taking…

Can Mommy Pee in Private, Please! ~ Mom Blog ~

Yesterday I was telling my husband that I don't ever remember our other two kids being so connected to me as a baby, as in connected at the hip. Of course they loved their 'Mommy' still do as teenagers, but have funny ways of showing it and wanted to be with me, but this is a bit different.



With Hudson, if I stand up and attempt to walk out of the room, I have a whining combat crawler right behind me. It's quite pitiful, to say the least.… Continue

If Only I Had The Nerve - What Sport Would You Have Played?

I am so inspired by my daughters desire, and actual action, of playing Volleyball this year. I've spent so many years on the sidelines, wishing that I had the nerve to get out there and play. Most of my life I've had severe anxiety and couldn't make myself take that first step. But, if I had the nerve, I would have loved to be a…

Anxiety is good. Put down your Xanax.



I haven’t been to the dentist in four years. Now, I realize some of you just read that sentence and went slack-jawed and wide-eyed as if I told you I grind up puppies in a food mill. I’m quite aware that in some social circles, missing four years of dental appointments is akin to setting libraries on fire. But in my defense, I don’t particularly care for dental exams, which I feel is reason enough to let my teeth rot-out. That, and my mom is… Continue
